Filmmaker Christopher Nolan has thrown shade on modern comedian ebook films, calling them an ‘engine of commerce’ and likening film studios that churn them out to ‘machines’. Nolan made the statements through the promotional tour for a ebook on his movies, written by Tom Shore.
He mentioned that he was fortunate to have made The Dark Knight trilogy of movies when he did — the primary film, Batman Begins, arrived three years earlier than the primary Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.
He mentioned that one of many greatest benefits he had was that he was given time between sequels. “When we did Batman Begins, we didn’t know we’d do one and it took three years to do it and then four years before the next one. We had the luxury of time. It didn’t feel like a machine, an engine of commerce for the studio. As the genre becomes so successful, those pressures become greater and greater. It was the right time.”
He mentioned that his model of the long-lasting superhero turned in style as a result of that side of the story had by no means been placed on display screen. “It was the right moment in time for the telling of the story I wanted to do,” he mentioned, including that he was given the liberty to do what he wished with the character. “The origin story for Batman had never been addressed in film or fully in the comics. There wasn’t a particular or exact thing we had to follow. There was a gap in movie history. Superman had a very definitive telling with Christopher Reeve and Richard Donner. The version of that with Batman had never been told. We were looking at this telling of an extraordinary figure in an ordinary world.”
